Its been an eventful day for Serena Williams, beating Maria Sharapova, again, and releasing her debut rap track. Firstly and most importantly, the rap. Its kind of catchy, and I mean its better that Wozniacki's song...I still don't know if that is an achievement or not. Give it a listen, you might like it, it my blow your speakers, who knows.
Now the match, yes the match. Serena cut up that court like a frozen pizza, extended her head to head against Sharapova to 8-2 having won the last seven match dropping just two sets. The first set was over before you knew it, and as always against Sharapova, Serena seems to play pretty damn well no mater what the circumstances are.
The second set, although it may not seem it from the score, was much tighter having Serena taking her foot off the gas probably feeling as though she was pretty comfortably home already. Maria definitely had chances in the second but Serena was able to step up on the big points, assisted by her trusty serve. Ultimately Serena proved too strong and always one step ahead of her opponent finishing with a 6-1 6-3 victory.
In the semis Serena will meet surprise semi finalist, Lucie Hradecka who has won through qualifying and not beaten two top five players, Petra Kvitova and Sam Stosur to make her first ever Premier Mandatory semi final. In a match which featured no service breaks and Hradecka fired 19 aces she prevailed in two tie break sets winning them 10-8 and 8-6 respectively.
On the other half of the draw Victoria Azarenka and Agnieszka Radwanska will play for the sixth time this year, and it only may, and you've got to feel bad to Radwanska drawing Vika all the time.
